The WildThings NSW Eastern Pygmy Possum Project aims to help with the conservation of the Eastern Pygmy Possum and its associated habitat, both flora and fauna, such as endangered ecological communities like Coastal Upland Swamp and Duffys Forest, and Rosenbergs Goanna also listed a vulnerable to extiinction in NSW. The project is a citizen science program run by community volunteers, not just from Ku-ring-gai but also from nearby Local Government Areas. Currently we have 18 active field volunteers, monitoring 26 pygmy possum nestboxes and other hollows and using 8 wildlfie cameras to catch video footage of the nocturnal activities of the pygmy possums. We have so far found and obtained images of 38 Eastern Pygmy Possums at 28 sites in 3 population areas, 1 Rosenbergs Goanna and 1 Powerful Owl. We work closely with, and are supported by, Ku-ring-gai Municipal Council, in particular, its WildThings, Natural Areas and Wildflower Garden staff. Read our Success Story.
